Kessler vs Green For The WBC Silver Title in Play, 5/19

By Per Ake Persson

According to sources in Denmark and the United States, the World Boxing Council has approved a "WBC silver title fight at light heavyweight" - for Mikkel Kessler when he returns on May 19 in Copenhagen. Kessler´s opponent is said to be Allan Green. It will be the Viking Warrior´s debut at 175 and his first fight since June of last year.
 
Earlier this week - Kessler's promoter, Kalle Sauerland, "killed" the rumors of a possible fight against the WBA interim-champ at super middleweight, Brian Magee, claiming that the Irishman had priced himself out.
 
The WBA's regular champ at 168, Karol Balzsay, defends the title against Dimitri Sartison on April 21 in Schwerin and that took out another name from Sauerland´s list. IBF champion Tavoris Cloud was also mentioned, but has a mandatory due to Karo Murat.
